The best-selling animal advocate Temple Grandin offers
the most exciting exploration of how animals feel since
The Hidden Life of Dogs.
In her groundbreaking and best-selling book Animals
in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own
experience with autism as well as her distinguished career
as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into
how animals think, act, and feel.Now she builds on those
insights to show us how to give our animals the best and
happiest life—on their terms, not ours.
It’s usually easy to pinpoint the cause of physical pain
in animals, but to know what is causing them emotional
distress is much harder.Drawing on the latest research and
her own work,Grandin identifies the core emotional needs
of animals.Then she explains how to fulfill them for dogs
and cats, horses, farm animals, and zoo animals.Whether
it’s how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you
must leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from
being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is
miserable or just exercising,Grandin teaches us to challenge
our assumptions about animal contentment and honor our
bond with our fellow creatures.
Animals Make Us Human is the culmination of almost
thirty years of research, experimentation, and experience.
This is essential reading for anyone who’s ever owned,
cared for, or simply cared about an animal.
